The origin of the Pug is actually still a mystery. There are a few theories to where this dog came from, but no real truth yet. These dogs are cute, tiny, lovable little companions, and they get along with almost anybody, whether they know the people or not. This is a great dog for children.


These dogs are fairly active, but due to their size and obedient nature, they do very well indoors. You can supply them with all of the exercise they need inside, playing fetch, playing chase, or simply playing fetch with their favorite rope toy. However, walks are always good for exercise.


As far as dog care goes, the Pug is fairly low maintenance. They rarely need baths, and shed an average amount. Their main issue is that they have a tendency to drool a little bit, so if you've equipped your pug with a muzzle, you may have to clean it.


The Pug has a forgiving and loving nature. They don’t like to be yelled at, but they don’t hold any grudges. They are small with soft fur, and really enjoys being petted and played with. Give this dog plenty of adoring attention, and he will be your best friend for life.


The coat of the Pug is supposed to be a soft one. Their fur is short and touchable. Their coloring is usually a mix of white, black, or brown, with the mask of their face often being a darker color than the rest of their body. Shedding is normal, and brushing requirements are minimal.


Pug puppies are naturally happy, and they love to meet new people. These dogs normally crave positive attention. So they are great for children that like animals. They are not exactly defensive, but are easily scared by loud noises. They regain their composure quickly though, and are ready to play again in no time.


The Pug dog has the frame of mind to do as his owner says and make them proud. The only downside to training is that it can be rather hard to keep their attention. If you can make training a fun and happy experience, they'll be sure to do as they're told.
